    Great work from a technical standpoint, but am I missing something? Seems to lack cohesiveness. Not a bad thing cause the shadows, lighting, etc is great, but seems a little random, no?

    Nice use of vectors btw...

    It’s meant to be a reflection of how the Arena has been the last few weeks (pretty empty). I’m pictured poking a sleeping beast trying to wake him/her for a battle. The circles are kind of random, just meant to be trippy more than anything

    I originally had other ideas about how I was going to work the image. I was going to be pictured with a megaphone about to startle the bear with a strap of “bring the noise” or something – but I couldn’t find a way of doing it that I was happy with – the only way would have had me disproportionately large compared to the bear – which wouldn’t be correct in my eyes.

    bottom 2/3rds of the image is great. Funny concept yet very poinent. The type on the top left isn't very desirable, but i do like it. What really stick out is the yellow vectors. Maybe if you had blended them somehow, or tried to do a trendwhore 'glow' with some gaussian blur...maybe that would have toned them down a bit.

    Nice job matt.

    I like it alot! great attention to detail. The vector stuff doesent bother me but it might be just a smidge too much. I really like it though.

    Damn my fetish for all things yellow!

    I dig what you’re all saying about the circles and text. I spent hours and hours blending the bottom half of the image – and comparatively no time at all on the sky, which shows I guess.

    I look forward to your image Extricate!

    I appreciate your comments and cheers for the title change E

    I can only postulate the probability of performing at a paramount level of perfection praised by the pulchritudinous paragon whose only practice is to preserve such a paradigm.
